Cofix Effect: Two Years Running

Large capuchino @ Montifiori (the old Cafe Cafe) Ibn Gvirol & Arlozorov, 15 NIS

I have to admit that when Cofix [HE] opened over two years ago, my intuition was off. Tel Aviv was full of buzz on how the coffee prices will go down and the great socialist ideal of "fair prices" for this daily commodity will start a consumer revolution. Fast forward two years and nothing doin'! NADA, KLOOM (as they say in the shook) - shum davar... OK, essentially, that little Cofix shot across the bow of Arcafe, Greg's, Ilan's, and a few other small coffee chains has not moved the market one little bit.
